WhatsApp to HC: Information shared by users safe



NEW DELHI: The Delhi high court will take a call on newprivacy policy of WhatsApp on September 23, two days before its proposed rollout in India.

A division bench of Chief Justice G Rohini and Justice Sangita Dhingra Sehgal fixed the date after WhatsApp assured the court its privacypolicy doesn't allow sharing of any information with Facebook if the user doesn't want to. The messaging platform also submitted in HC that due to its end-to-end encryption no third party can access the messages shared among users and if a person deletes his or her WhatsApp account, the information of that person is no longer retained on its servers.

Opposing a petition challenging its new privacy policy, the company's counsel Siddharth Luthra told the court that a message is deleted from its server after it is delivered to the recipient and only if a message has remained undelivered to the intended recipient, do they store it on server for upto 30 days.
